DO politicians really desire or plan to create a growth engine which can provide basic needs (jobs, shelter, clothing and bread) for generations to come, or do they plan to only distribute largesse to feed the greed of voters to keep themselves floating come what may. India has to debate how long political parties and its leaders will be allowed to dole out the State exchequer in lieu of votes? Do they want to make Indians indolent? The government is not an isolated institution; it’s the formation of a structure collectively decided by the people to be governed. If the very assertion of the government is destroyed by communities, groups, and institutions, then the governance of India is in peril. The issue of reservation in government jobs is again cropping up across the country and especially by a very powerful and influential community, the Jats.
